What soil is right for you?
All soil should be breathable, not be water logged and have the correct PH Level. All our soils are tested for this.
As Dug Soil (2nd Grade Soil)
The filling grade - This soil is just as it says on the tin, we still screen it with the 40mm screener to remove any larger stone. It contains the right level of compounds such as clay and sand, perfect for filling and turfing. This is not a growth grade of soil, if unsure on the right grade for you please speak to one of our advisors.
Virgin Soil (1st Soil)
This is screened with a 9mm screener from Greenland, certified to have the right natural balance for all gardens.
Loam Soil (A* Grade Soil)
This is blended here on the farm with organic matter (compost) and sand to create the perfect drainage for all growing roots and the extra nutrients they need for the best growth.
Testing your soil
Signs of healthy soil include plenty of underground animal and plant activity, such as earthworms and fungi.
Soil that is rich in organic matter tends to be darker and crumbles off of the roots of plants you pull up, or crumbles in your hands.
Small amounts of certain compounds can effect your garden grass, such as not enough lime or elements of aluminium in the soil.
